A Grant Initiated Program
MU-ADEPT, initiated by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) trains residents and other health care professionals to provide SBIRT services in general health care settings.
Training is not complete without clinical practice and that requires settings where SBIRT is supported. Hence, a corollary objective is to cultivate the organizational infrastructure – leadership, faculty and operational capacity – to support SBIRT services.
With a focus on developing and integrating SBIRT training into the curriculum for MU medical residencies and other training programs in the areas of medicine, social work, and nursing, MU-ADEPT provides training to community healthcare providers through collaborative work with key partners and other SBIRT initiatives including:
- The Missouri Department of Mental Health
- The Missouri Institute of Mental Health
- Mid-America Addiction Technology Transfer Center
Reduce alcohol and drug misuse for a healthier and safer Missouri.
Make screening and prevention for substance misuse as common and routine in healthcare as taking blood pressures and treating for hypertension.
